Tuition Assistance Program (TAP)

In my review of the Archdiocese of Washington educational policies, such as the elimination of discounts to families with multiple children in Catholic schools, you will notice that they are trying to push everyone through the TAP program.

Now, one of the most interesting things is that there are no guidelines as to who is or is not eligible, so you cannot determine if you should or should not apply. So, in addition to being totally subjective, as far as I can tell, you have to pay a fee to give up a great deal of personal information.


On a separate note, one of my reader's informed me that there is an effort underway to get all Catholics to wear red on Nov. 19th in honor of the elevation of Cardinal-elect Wuerl.

Who's STUPID idea was that over in Hyattsville? I will wear black.

What color do you think we should wear on Friday?

I won't be wearing red. What are we a high school pep squad?

I have never been able to understand policy number 4700, the one about geographically necessary schools. What do you make of it? Why would parents be awarded larger tuition assistance just because of the school that their children attend. Do you know whether or not the Archdiocese has designated a school or schools as geographcally necessary? I think there is a story to be told about this policy, but I'm just not sure what it is.
